Summary

A Warhammer Horror audiobook

A disgraced warrior-priest who prowls the Greywater Fastness is forced to confront his past when a message from an old friend sends him on a perilous quest. In an isolated village full of untrusting souls, his darkest secrets threaten to come to light.

Listen to It Because:

Explore a corner of the Mortal Realms full of dangerous characters and dark secrets in a tale by Josh Reynolds, master of the sinister.

The Story:

Harran Blackwood was a Warrior-Priest of ruthless virtue. Now he's a man with a scorched reputation, prowling the back alleys of Greywater Fastness, content to fight the petty wars of racketeers for survival. But when a desperate message arrives from an old friend, Blackwood is forced to confront a past he thought long buried. 

Summoned to the isolated village of Wald, Blackwood sets off on a perilous trek to ensure the sins of his former life remain forgotten. He soon discovers that Wald is a hostile, secretive place with sins of its own. Deep in the murky marshes, where the cruel chants of village folk echo and the stink of death hovers low, Blackwood must channel his bitterness and rage to defy the ancient darkness that now hunts him before he is devoured, body and soul.

So good!

Grimdark at it's finest, the story plays out like a bleak noire of sorts with a decent mystery. Completely different look at the Sylvaneth and just what is capable in Age of Sigmar as a setting.

simply excellent AOS horror!

For fans of the grimdark vibe of the warhammer brought to AoS this is a must listen. a great story and the narration is really appropriate (it gets a little getting used to) highly recommended!

Gritty

Good audiobook, easy to follow and the narrator who I was worried might be irritating actually worked well for this gritty tale. The end of the book felt weak and nothing really happened but the first eighty per cent was well-paced and atmospheric

Fancy a game?..

What a great book, the narration sold every minute of it as real. The dripping dank setting, the dark ominous feeling in the pit of your stomach. Beautifully immersive, i coupled listening to this with a gentle background of rain throughout listening and it transported me to the dim grime filled world of warhammer. Don’t hesitate to buy this, the hunt is on!

Dark fantasy meets the Wicker Man and Snake Plissken

This is the best Black Library book I have read and is fantastically dark whilst keeping the reader turning each page with a sense of urgency to discover what the hero/anti-hero will face next. Blackwood has the same attitude towards life as Snake Plissken another anti-hero faced with a formidable task. The sense of foreboding throughout is exciting as are the regular surprises regarding the “dark harvest”. Highly recommended, next for me is C L Werner’s Witch Hunter trilogy. Looking forward to another Blackwood novel!

Great entry into the Warhammer franchise

Enjoyable with plenty of twists. The ending is a bit of a downer as it seems to use a possible sequel as a reason to just end the book instead of explaining what just happened.

Dark, dark, DARK! :D

Awesome and Grimdark! A great look in to not only the Mortal Realms and their underbelly but also the Sylvaneth! Narration is great and it's wonderfully written.

Excellent story of the old world, even in the age of sigmarines

I have been a fan of GW novels and games since the 80’s. I am truly not a fan of the recent conversion of the old world to something that looks like 40k, but is steampunk. That said, this was an excellent story with an excellent reader. The voice at first seems a little over done, but in time it grows on you. The story itself is in the old tradition, and was quite good as both a fantastic story and as horror fiction (left you wondering).

A Dark Swamp-town mystery!

Not a story for the faint of heart, but one I thoroughly enjoyed! This story was an absolute joy to listen to, and I would love to hear more about the epic adventures and downfall of Haran Blackwood! Packed with action, suspense, a fair bit of comedic moments, and a good dose of grindhouse-style horror! I was almost brought to tears towards the end, and am really praying for a series to be made of this amazing character! "How about a game of cards?" 10/10! Major props to both the narrator and the author!

unfortunately a miss for me.

the story was paper thin and the narrator chose such an odd cadence for the whole thing. the story consists of the main character thinking things look like deer and telling you how cool he thinks he is.

9.5/10

Exceptional performace combined with fascinating story. For me, it's first age of sigmar book with that classy 'warhammer adventure' feel to it. Loved it!

Great dark book.

This is a great book that I would love to see made in a TV show of sorts or maybe a move series as such. The reader is amazing in this role and his voice fits the scene of the book well. I would love to hear more Warhammer Horror with him.

not particularly scary but still great

a horror novel centered around the sylvaneth is a great core concept. u fortunately the book isn't all that scary. the main character is really capable and a total bad ass so your aware from the begining he is never really in danger. this kind of puts damper on the scares. it is however very entertaining and just spooky enough to scratch that Warhammer horror itch. if you haven't listened to maladiction yet I'd recommend that over this one. one of the best pieces of horror I've read in awhile and probably my favorite Warhammer novel of all gime

its all atmosphere. kind of boring

its probably as spooky as reynolds can be but admittedly its not very scary. its grimdark at best. its a fun view at predatory tree kin but i feel theres no real feeling of terror ever present. if your already a warhammer fantasy fan then its great inspiration for possible gaming setting and impliments on table top but as a "horror novel" its weak. good world ,somewhat intriguing story ,and characters ,atmosphere is strong but thats pretty much all this had going for it. got bored half way through and ended up putting it down. narrator is decent ,good voice for horror.

Good Horror

Entertaining, it probably helps to have some familiarity with the Age of Sigmar universe. Narrator does a great job.
